Default Where are fuses located?

Where are the fuses located and can they be changed out? Thanks for any insight as machine can do head cleanings and ink charges however when it is printing on a shirt no ink comes out. The head is operating normally otherwise. Thanks for any insight.

This sounds like its the fuse on the print board and it is not like your standard fuse. Please contact AnaJet tech support right away so we can help you with this.

Default Re: Where are fuses located?

Mine is doing the exact same thing.....not less than a year after I spent close to 2,000 bucks sending it to Anajet for the same problem. They ended up replacing fuses and replacing a brand new printhead that apparently wasnt working. Brand new printhead that I had purchased form Anajet that apparently caused the fuses to blow and somehow the printhead was blown too. This machine is the greatest contributor to most of the cursing that originates form our shop.

For those of us that are tech savvy and can turn a wrench....does anyone know if its possible to simply send off the print board for repair instead of spending 300 bucks to ship this thing to California????

Or where can you purchase these fuses F1 and F2 and have the repairs made locally?

Also, wouldnt it make absolute sense to instead replace these two fuses which tend to blow every freaking time you replace the printhead with external fuses you can simply pop in and out???

Last but not least.....I have an FP-125 thats currently not printing for sale! Make me an offer.

What is the proper Rating of the F2 fuse?

Did you ever find out where the fuses are located? I am having the same problem now, but no one from Anajet tech support will help more or tell me where the fuses are located on the control board or what they look like.

They want me to send it in to replace the entire board, but my thought process is I might as well try to replace the fuses myself first. Any help would be AMAZING!

Default Re: Where are fuses located?

The fuses are located on the main board. F1 fuse is located directly in front of the heat sink (the aluminum object with lots of fins on it). The F2 fuse is actually on the bottom side of the main board which would require you to unplug everything and turn it over to see it. Typically its this F2 fuse that blows.

You gotta understand ANAJET's position. Last thing they want is for you to complicate or make the problem worse and end up costing yourself even more money. If you've indeed blown the fuse you can indeed repair it yourself with the right micro tools and experience in soldering tiny fuses on motherboards but its definitely not a recommended do it yourselfer type of job.

If youve got the cajones to attempt the fix...certainly let us know how it works out for you. If you confirm youve blown the fuse and simply would prefer to replace the board...you'll end up dropping around $250.00 for the board. Again keep in mind that reconnecting all the wires back on to the board incorrectly after replacement can lead to the same problem the minute you turn it back on.

Having said all that.....I'm fixing mine on my own!

Default Re: Where are fuses located?

Thank you SO much for getting back to me! Ok so I am looking at the board, I see the F1 fuse on the end of the right board, but do you know out of the 3 parts which the F2 is located under. I didn't see it under than one, and am afraid Im not going to remember all the wires so am trying to unplug as little as possible haha.

Thanks again!

Before you disconnect anything take notes of whats connected to what. label wires or ables as well and as a third measure take digital pictures of the assemblyprior to unplugging anything and take them from different angles so that you can refer to them if you need to at time of installation.

Default Re: Where are fuses located?

At the risk of sounding like a know it all (I am not), I am going to chime in.
The fuse/fuses in question are not even visable without removing the EPSON board. IF you successfully get that part done you will need some really impressive soldering skills to replace the fuses. Any discharge of static during this operation and you not only run the risk of damaging more than you started with but may wipe out the printhead in the process. I feel all your pain, been down this road myself. One may think that a better way to go would be to swap the board with a new one,,,, okay, but, there is nothing to say the printhead is still okay at this point. You put a new board in, still does not print and you have no idea where your issues are. As a side note, this is not ANAJET's creation. This is the EPSON board and has been created by them. Could/should ANAJET put some pressure on EPSON to do something different, like give us replaceable fuses? I think yes, but again, just my opinion..

Default Re: Where are fuses located?

You are correct IRONHOG...asI I previously informed Night Owl in a post that "The fuses are located on the main board. F1 fuse is located directly in front of the heat sink (the aluminum object with lots of fins on it). The F2 fuse is actually on the bottom side of the main board which would require you to unplug everything and turn it over to see it. Typically its this F2 fuse that blows"...."If you've indeed blown the fuse you can indeed repair it yourself with the right micro tools and experience in soldering tiny fuses on motherboards but its definitely not a recommended do it yourselfer type of job".

Anajet has indeed done the right thing....theyve come out with the Mpower which is a gamechanger. No more epson mainboard and no more easy clog printheads.

My personal recommendation? trade your FP-125 in for an Mpower5and get a 6,000 dollar trade in on it an dlet them worry about what to do with it. You end up with a much much faster machine with multiple printheads and a continuous ink flow system thats off the chain! I've got mine on order.

Default Re: Where are fuses located?

Can anyone verify if the main circuit board is the exact circuit board from an Epson R1800? Could I replace it with an R1800 Main Board? Did Anajet makes any changes to the R1800 board used in the FP-125?

The main board in the Anajet FP-125 is the same as the Epson R1800. You just have to remove the red wire and solder it to new board. I found one on Ebay for $50. Not hard to do. Good Luck
